It’s Garden and Fresh Veggie Time!

At least that’s the rumor that’s spreading through the bunny community.  We have had some adult rabbits visiting and today we found a younger generation getting into the slow food movement.  So far, I can’t tell that any of them have eaten the veggies, just the grass growing around them.  If I could count on this to continue, I would take the fences down.  But I’m not going to count on it.  So the fence was extended all the way around, alongside the back steps, and then securely fastened all along the bottom.  Without knowing the wisdom of my actions, I placed fence posts along the boundaries of the gardens to form ‘semi-raised’ beds for planting. This made it extra easy for my husband to staple the chicken wire fencing along the bottom.  If the bunnies can get in now, they deserve what they get!

Notice the great crop of grass I have?  I planted (intentionally) the plant to the upper right of this little munchkin.  If you can properly identify it, I would be greatly thankful.  I planted lettuce (but not there), spinach (next row over), swiss chard (can’t remember which row), and chinese cabbage (again, can’t remember where).  So I’ve got this narrowed down to either the chard or the chinese cabbage – and it doesn’t look like the pictures on either seed package.  Whatever it is, the leaves are still young and tender and very good on salads.  Mr. Bunny, however, does not appear impressed.


Fiber Arts Friday

Fiber Arts FridayIt’s Fiber Arts Friday again, and to tell you the truth, I haven’t done much in the way of fiber arts this week except for the some spinning grooming a bunny.  And I don’t have photos of either.  But I will share of photo of the bunny I’ll be working on this afternoon.  I love spinning with Angora.  I’ve made a pair of mitts (that don’t fit well and aren’t the same size, and I still haven’t photographed them) that are a merino/Angora blend that are so soft and yummy that I wear them anyway, even though they don’t match! (If DH is reading, that was an example of a run-on sentence!)

This is Ruby when she was young, about 6 months old.  She is now about 2 1/2 years old.  Her coat is beautiful.  It is lighter now and more dense.  I started working on grooming her on Tuesday.  I got her back, the best part of the coat.  Then we took a break.  She looks silly in a ‘skirt’.  I’ll finish her up this evening and then start on Buster this weekend.


Now it’s your turn!  Post a link to your fiber related blog post in the comments section.  It can be any type of fiber at any stage, from on the hoof to finished product.  It’s a wonderful way to share ideas and make new friends.  Talk to you later.  Enjoy!
